Good Product... but be cautious
I have Verizon's XV-6700 and I bought this antenna and connector package for it to help boost the signal at my house where I get poor reception. The first time I plugged in the external antenna something in the phone went wrong and it basically required me to use the antenna even in areas that I would normally get a full signal. I did a little research about using an antenna with the phone and found that many other people had experienced the same problem and specifically with it's very fragile antenna port (on one of the boards I found someone had contacted Audiovox and their tech said the antenna port was actually a diagnostic port -- but that's not what the manual says). I ended up getting a replacement phone from Verizon and I won't plug this or any other antenna into the antenna port of the new phone. It's a shame too, because this antenna did get a better signal in areas I normally have trouble.
